The wedding world always goes a bonkers when Pantone release their colours for the year. For 2017, Greenery is the colour to watch. We couldn’t love this shade more given how green and gorgeous our woodlands are. So today, we’re sharing our favourite ideas for a Greenery inspired wedding…
Fall In Love With Foliage
Oh yes, taking inspiration from Greenery allows you to also indulge in one of our favourite wedding trends – foliage. We know that we’re surrounded by beautiful botanicals all day long but leaves; fronds and plants are so gorgeous. As well as looking fab, foliage can be a lot kinder to your wedding budget than flowers so what’s not to love?
We just love big bridal bouquets made from foliage and if you add some scented herbs, these are simply stunning. Pots of herbs also make great tablecentres or favours for guests.
If you’d like a little bit of colour, add in one or two statement blooms for contrast. You can also use greenery to create a foliage crown rather than a floral version and for eco-chic or boho brides, these are perfect.
Wedding Decorations With Greenery
Fresh foliage also makes the best wedding decorations. You can use long lengths of greenery to create garlands that can line tables or highlight different parts of your venue. Alternatively, you can create hoops and circlets made from foliage and use these to form backdrops or as hanging decorations. We also love seeing greenery decorating cakes, napkins, wedding signage and even our four legged friends!
Tips For Using Greenery At Your Wedding
As you’ll see from the images in this feature, using natural foliage for your Greenery inspired wedding gives a really clean and uncomplicated look to your wedding. Here are our five tops tips for making your Greenery wedding absolutely unforgettable:
- Team your greens with fresh white or ivory. You can add in a soft peach or a pale pink if you’d like but this colour palette is best when it’s kept simple.
- Add in various textures and shapes. Mix round leaves with spiky ferns and wispy fronds. This creates a natural, varied and interesting look.
- Keep everything as unstructured as possible. Loose bouquets and trailing tablecentres look brilliant.
- Play around with fabrics and other materials. Wood slices look fab with foliage as does heavy cotton, raw silk and even linen. Combine different elements for the best look.
- Use foliage with slightly different colours for maximum impact. You could even carry this slightly mismatched look through to the greens of your bridesmaids’ dresses!
